This is an inspiration of Versace and Lacroix; a mix of African textile and Greece history. Her collection is strongly inspired by the antique Greek. Light, sophicated in a complex fabrication, Mary gives surely her best fashion show.
In the middle of a reproduction of the Colonne de Buren (Place du Palais Royal Paris ), Mary Katrantzou sent her young deities down the runway wearing vase prints, embroidered medusa motifs and classical geometric shapes encased in tulle, with contoured faces straight out of a Greek tragedy, embellished with Swarovski crystals.
Laurel wreaths were transformed into single statement earrings that dangled from or wrapped around the ears. Classical mosaics took the form of geometric collages worn as sweet plastic details. A painting of a divine space age, from the ancient to the futuristic avant-garde.
Unfortunately, the protégé of Ralph Toledano had not the pleasure to welcome him during her fashion show.
